    Stats have shown the gunners dominate possession in most games. They also have more shots at goal.
    As stated,if trophies were awarded for these two categories,Arsenal will be ahead of MU in the epl.
    But goals win matches and the gunners have failed miserably.
    Even if he were to get Falcao and other wc players,unless he tweaks his tactics with regard to defence,they will be in alimbo. His obssession with possessio n and endless passing is the major cause of the current problems.
    If the gunners can’t get going,then he shd go regardless of whether he breaks a contract.
